Tropical Storm Norbert won’t make a major landfall on the U.S. coast, but that isn’t stopping the tropical system from making a major impact on Mexico.

Fishing villages along the Mexican coast were dealt a serious blow by high surf, winds and rain from Norbert. More than 1,250 homes in Comondú, Mexico were damaged by Norbert, after waves burst through a seawall and inundated a fishing village.

Thousands of others were evacuated as Norbert approached. More than 2,000 people were evacuated in Comondú, Los Cabos and La Paz as of Saturday due to concerns over Norbert’s impact.

Baja California Sur state Gov. Marcos Covarrubias urged people in vulnerable areas to evacuate and said travelers should stay off highways as the storm passed by, The Associated Press reports. He said most government services would be closed or restricted. Firefighters rescued several people from vehicles stranded in flooded streets, said Wenceslao Petit, Public Safety Director in Cabo San Lucas.

Ports in the area popular with U.S. tourists remained closed to navigation, and police officers were sent to the evacuated neighborhoods to prevent looting, Petit added.

Schools in Los Cabos and La Paz were closed on Friday.

Norbert was the ninth hurricane of a busy eastern Pacific hurricane season and will eventually have some peripheral impacts in parts of the Southwest U.S.
